Abuja - The incoming administration expressed disconcert at some appointments President Goodluck Jonathan has made ahead of the expiry of his tenure.
Jonathan must hand power over to the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration led by Muhammadu Buhari on May 29.
Despite the conclusion of his term nearing, on Tuesday, Jonathan approved the appointment of Asabe Asmau Ahmed as Executive Secretary of the Petroleum Equalisation Fund (PEF).

Jonathan has approved the appointment of Denzil Amagbe Kentebe as Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Content Management Development Board (NCDMB).
“Is it part of their transition mode that President Jonathan has been engaged in a rash of feverish last-minute appointments that, though may not have breached any known law, are patently in bad faith, morally repugnant and indecorous,” APC spokesperson, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said on Thursday.
“They say they are in office until May 29th, but pray, are appointments the only function of a government? Are there no problems crying for attention, such as the intractable fuel scarcity, the worsening power situation, the grounded economy and the missing Chibok girls?,” he quipped.
Recently, the President recently sacked the inspector General of Police, the Managing Director of the Nigerian Ports Authority and also appointed the former governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi as the Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission.
